Polecat Hearst

Crooked Politician Long Green by Culver. Below William Randolph Hearst's 'New Journalism' in the Examiner, as pictured by San Francisco Call cartoonist Culver in 1896. Culver often resorted to a simple means of drawing various miscreants who fell afoul of the editors -- he drew them as polecats. The 'Life' cartoon may be by a different cartoonist since its unsigned.
